Kansas House OK's Grandparents Rights in Custody Cases
05/02/2012

   TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas House has approved a compromise
bill involving the rights of grandparents in custody cases.
     The bill approved Monday gives "substantial consideration" to
grandparents of children who have been removed from their parents'
custody.
     The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/IOI5Sb ) the bill is
not as strong as one originally passed by the House, which would
have given grandparents "preference" in custody disputes.
     After the Senate passed a version that would have required
courts to give "consideration" to grandparents, the compromise
bill was worked out.
     Under the bill, if a judge decides not to place a grandchild
with grandparents, the reason would have to be recorded in the
official case record.
     The bill now goes to a final vote in the Senate.
